Natsume’s forecast, when the Harvest (Moon) arrives

hmooncute.jpgNintendo teased us with some Harvest Moon release dates in their massive beginning of year release schedule. However, not all the dates were accurate and it definitely didn’t include a date for Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon Special Edition since it’s a PlayStation 2 game. Natsume sent over their release list and this is what Harvest Moon fans can look forward to this year.


February 12th, 2008 – Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon Special Edition (PS2)

March 11th, 2008 – River King: Mystic Valley (NDS) < Note: this is called Harvest Fishing in Europe. >

March 25th, 2008 – Harvest Moon DS Cute (NDS)

June 2008 – Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness (NDS)

Q3 2008 – Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility (Wii)


Previously, Nintendo’s release schedule had River King: Mystic Valley and Harvest Moon DS Cute pinned on March 8, which I found quite odd. I couldn’t imagine Natsume competing with itself by releasing two games Nintendo DS games on the same day. The other news not on Nintendo’s list is a release window for Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility (tentatively called Harvest Moon Wii or Harvest Moon: Tree of Peace). North America gets it in the third quarter of 2008.

    I am a big Harvest Moon fan who can’t wait to snatch up these games ^^; Don’t know what it is about the game that makes it so addicting to play, but it’s nice to have these to look forward to.

    No Rune Factory 2? That’s a shame, as the first one is probably my favourite HM game for some time. I quite liked Innocent Life, though it was incredibly slow to get going. Be interesting to see what they’ve changed for the PS2 release.
